STORY: When it comes to top wines from South America, wine connoisseurs always mention Chile first. The country has received special attention for the cultivation of the Carmenère grape, originally from France, which was thought to be almost extinct when it was rediscovered in an old Chilean vineyard in the 1990s.
- VINIFICATION: With the Reserva qualities, the unique location of the winery on Monte Ninquen comes into its own. Only hand-picked vines from selected parcels are used in these wines. Storage in small French and American oak barrels gives them their special complexity and structure.
AROMA: Cabernet Sauvignon is responsible for the backbone and complexity, Syrah for depth and harmony, Carmenère for full fruit and Malbec for fine spice. The aging in French and American oak gives the wine delicate aromas of spices, cedar and vanilla.
EVALUATION: A profound, balanced red wine on the palate with complex aromas, soft tannins and a nice length.
SERVING RECOMMENDATION: with grilled and roasted meat, ragouts and cheese
When it comes to top wines from South America, wine connoisseurs always mention Chile first. The country has received special attention for the cultivation of the Carmenère grape, originally from France, which was thought to be almost extinct when it was rediscovered in an old Chilean vineyard in the 1990s. Since then, this grape has been pressed like no other region in the world with such passion to produce exceptionally unique top wines that some wines can easily compete with great Bordeaux growths. Above all, the wines from Chile's top producer MontGras, whose highly acclaimed wines have already won numerous international awards. Shortly after its founding in 1993, the winery was able to collect two of the most coveted awards in the wine world: at the International Wine & Spirits Competition (IWSC) in London, the winery was named "Best Chilean Wine Producer" and at Germany's leading premium wine competition MundusVini, MontGras was even voted "Best Overseas Producer of the Year". The dream team around the brothers Hernán and Eduardo Gras has everything you need to produce world-class wines: plenty of experience, the unique terroir on Monte Ninquén and a state-of-the-art winery with a barrique barrel storage facility that is unparalleled in all of South America. And on top of that: tons of passion, pioneering spirit and optimism. The sensational price/pleasure ratio of the wines has led to MontGras being one of the top producers from Chile in Germany today. The wine world had not seen a faster rise up to that point, but the wines of the Gras brothers kept what the early success promised.
